Community Involvement

Starting in the late 1990s, KPLP has recognized the importance and value of community outreach for education, healthy lifestyle, and charity. In 2000, KPLP started a well-received community outreach campaign and program which grew year after year. KPLP will continue to do this by remaining a responsible partner to the community now and in the future. This support total contributions over $1 million in the past four years alone. 

As a major industrial tenant in the James Campbell Industrial Park (JCIP), KPLP is a member of Kapolei Local Emergency Action Network (KLEAN). KLEAN was formed in 1996 as a voluntary, non-government not-for-profit local organization to bring together industry, emergency responders, and the community to effectively prepare for emergencies and to promote the welfare of the people and its surrounding areas. 


Facility Tours


Throughout the year, KPLP hosts a number of in-person tours to businesses, community members, government officials, industry leaders, students and the public. Our in-person tours are tailored to meet the goals and interests of the attendees, whether it is a school group learning about how electricity is made or government officials seeking a better understanding of KPLP’s generating potential. These tours include a presentation overview of KPLP’s facility as well as an opportunity for questions to be answered by our team of professionals.

Community Meetings and Public Outreach

KPLP continues its community engagement initiatives by arranging opportunities for community members, organizations and other stakeholders to learn about KPLP, including visiting KPLP’s facility, and its role in providing energy for Oahu and supporting Hawaii’s clean energy goals. Throughout its existence, KPLP has invited businesses, community members, government officials, industry leaders, students and the public to join KPLP at our public community engagement meetings. These community engagement meetings include a presentation on KPLP’s plant operations, emissions controls, commercial aspects of energy, and social responsibility programs. The presentation is followed by a question-and-answer session as an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions, seek clarification, and share concerns.

Continuing to Evaluate our Community Plan

KPLP evaluates its Outreach and Community Support Program on an annual basis which allows for flexibility and creativity in how conversations are started, how we reach the public, and how funding is distributed. This is how KPLP acknowledges the importance of recognizing and supporting organizations within the community whose goals are to serve the people and protect the land. By having these meaningful conversations, KPLP remains current on the needs of the community as we continue our mission of being a contributing member of the Oahu community.

Community Commitment

Beyond the expanding landscape of the James Campbell Industrial Park (JCIP), KPLP has from its earliest days sought to become a valued member of the broader surrounding communities. KPLP has not only recognized both the importance and value of being a good corporate citizen, but also its civic and business obligation to be one.

 As a result, KPLP has become involved with and continues to support multiple organizations such as the American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, American Red Cross Association, Chamber of Commerce Hawaii, Domestic Violence Action Center, Hawaii Food Bank, Hawaii Nature Center, Leeward Community College, Legal Aid Society of Hawaii, Ronald McDonald House Charities Hawaii, Rotary Club of Kapolei, Special Olympics Hawaii, University of Hawaii West Oahu, and most High Schools in the Leeward Oahu School District.
